Linxon wins order for substation project in Sweden
Sweden, Stockholm: Linxon has won an order of ca. $18 M from the Swedish utility Svenska kraftnät.
The company is to supply a new 400 kV substation in Hall, outside the town of Södertälje, 25 km south of Stockholm.
This project consists in installation of a new 400 kV air insulated (AIS) substation to replace the existing substation which has reached the end of its lifespan. The scope of works includes design, supply, construction and commissioning. Site works are planned to start in spring 2021 and the project is estimated to be completed in autumn 2023.
“We are honoured to have received our fourth large order to enhance the power grid in the Swedish capital”, said Frédéric Trefois, CEO of Linxon. “This again demonstrates the strength of collaboration between Linxon and our customers as well as our joint intention to deliver on our commitments to end clients and the wider community.”
As a part of its overall strategy, Svenska kraftnät has launched a modernization program to expand and upgrade existing facilities to ensure it can meet the needs of Sweden’s growing urban population.
Linxon commenced operations on 1 September 2018, undertaking turnkey electrical alternating current substation projects related to renewable and conventional power generation, power transmission and transportation solutions. Substations enable the efficient and reliable transmission and distribution of electricity. Within the substation, switchgear controls and protects the network from power outages and facilitates reliable electricity supply.
